Kaavia James Union-Wade kicked off Memorial Day weekend with a relaxing day at the beach.
The daughter of Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade put on her best beachwear as she enjoyed some fun in the sun on Saturday. The setting also made for a picture-perfect background for an impromptu photo shoot.
In one photo shared by her mom Gabrielle, Kaavia can be seen walking towards the camera. “Walking into this weekend like…”, Union captioned under the photo.
Kaavia, who is usually seen living up to her “Shady Baby” moniker, can be seen smiling widely in one other snap. “She’s smiling,” one commenter wrote.
Union recently penned a children’s book titled, Welcome To The Party. Illustrated by artist Ashley Evans, Welcome to the Party was inspired by “the eagerly awaited birth” of Kaavia, whom Union shares with her husband, three-time NBA champion Dwyane Wade.
Gabrielle and Dwyane welcomed their only child together in 2018 via surrogate. Though initially disappointed that she wasn’t able to carry her own child, Union came to realize that “every route to parenthood is perfect, worthwhile and amazing” and loves Kaavia dearly. “She brings us all the joy we could have ever imagined but there’s this extra layer. She is dreams fulfilled,” said Union. “She is the living embodiment of not giving up. I never thought this little girl could represent so much.”
Earlier this month, Union took to Instagram to show off the trailer for her book. In the caption she wrote: “My inspiration for writing this book is to acknowledge all the routes to motherhood and the creating and expanding of families. Reminding everyone that no matter how you family, we welcome you, love you and celebrate you.”
Kaavia is indeed celebrated, not only by her family but her millions of Instagram followers as well!
